The Greek parliament has unanimously voted to recognize Palestine as an independent state. It comes amid an official visit to Greece by the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

The Greek premier Alexis Tsipras said on Monday that the vote to recognize Palestinian statehood would only serve to cement formal recognition at a later “appropriate” date.

Following today's vote, Greece is set to change “PA [Palestinian Authority]” to “Palestine” in its official documents.

It should be noted that Palestine has been recognized by the Greek parliament, but not by the Greek state.

However, the move has already come under fire from Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, who said the decision “leads nowhere” and has “no practical significance.”

Last year, Palestine was recognized as a state by Sweden, with the first Palestinian embassy opening in Stockholm in January 2015.

The UK, France, and the Vatican also recognize Palestinian statehood, but with restrictions, and are not legally bound to take any practical steps as a result of granting recognition.

In September, the Palestinian flag was hoisted for the first time at the UN headquarters as a symbolic gesture in the territory’s quest for statehood.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed the country’s Foreign Ministry to provide up to $5.3 million in humanitarian aid to Palestine, a document on the official Russian legal information Internet portal said Wednesday.

According to the decree, the Russian Foreign Ministry was ordered to coordinate conditions and methods of providing humanitarian aid with Palestine’s authorities.

Humanitarian aid is expected to be delivered to Palestine by the end of 2015, the decree said.

Palestine is involved in a long-standing conflict with Israel over the latter's inability to recognize the independent State of Palestine, on the territories of West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

Israel seized most of the areas claimed by Palestine during the Six-Day War in 1967, refusing to recognize the State of Palestine as an sovereign nation.
